Beauty and The Beast

Once upon a time in a far-off country, a successful merchant lived in a lovely cottage in the forest with his two sons and two daughters.

Whenever one of his ships came into port, he would travel to town to sell the goods that they brought back. And every time, his children would ask him to bring things back for them.

Beauty and the Beast is a 1991 film about a young and beautiful French woman who falls in love with a hideous beast. Loosely based on the fairy tale of the same name, for example, Belle refused the invitation for dinner.

After that, the days took on a similar pattern. There were plenty of wonderful rooms and gardens in the palace to entertain her. But every evening after supper, the Beast came to see her, and always before saying goodnight, he asked in his terrible voice, "Beauty, do you love me?"

Beauty, thinking of the prince of her dreams, always answered politely, "No, Beast."

But the longer Beauty stayed at the castle, the less she was afraid of the Beast. She began to notice that he was actually very polite when he came to see her, and even seemed to be a little nervous. After a while, it occurred to Beauty that the Beast seemed more scared of her than she was of him.
